Red Shetland  in person by Rabbette Red Shetland  in person by Rabbette
From past ConFURences, the numbers escape me right now, comes Red Shetland: she-mare with a sword. Seen here in her later appearances in the top 2 pics, below barely visinle is her companion who's name i can't recall. Sorry.
A creation of Jim Groat, Red had her own comic which is available here [link]
She also appeared in an animation done by Eric Schwartz that you can see here [link] part 2 is linked on that page too.

A classic moment in furry fandom that I missed was Jim being surprised by Red Shetland in full costume including chain mail bikini with the her saying "hiya pop." This was at a time when fursuits were still a rarity at cons.

I met her a couple of times at the con, just to say hi for a pic. I'd agree, she seemed very nice.
A moment I'm sorry I missed is where she sprung the costume on Jim Groat. He did a con report comic showing her coming over to his table and saying "hiya pop" and he had an amazed look on his face.

 Some time ago, I had learned that she retired but it was third hand info and there really wasnt any reason stated.  Im only sorry that I never got to meet her, as I am into bellydance and costuming as well.  Now she is gone. Rest in Peace, Kishma. Your costumes were inspiring.

I really should post the Confurence 4 video I have, it shows her (in her post armor phase but still as Red) along with the debut of Vicky Rabbit, whom I still say they based Lola Bunny on.

Yeah it's a pretty rough copy made off a very early and cheap vhs to dvd converter deck.
Still all I wanted to preserve was the fursuit stuff especially Vicky Rabbit's debut and Hilda performing at the cabaret.

yeah she awesome she even sent me cookies while was in Afghanistan yeah Jim used to suck me into watching his table while he run off to rub elbows at the cons. Might have even been there for it cause her sister and Ed often did costumes long before the Red ones was made pity the mask got destroyed
